Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:48:22 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159864 +++
This vulnerability involved a complex interaction between a maliciously created
SMIL file and specifically crafted web server caused a heap overflow in the
error message processing for RealText which could have allowed an attacker to
execute arbitrary code on a customer's machine.
They won't. The RH8 binaries do work however. I sent an e-mail requesting the
RH8 binaries and asking if we can ship the Real guys a RHEL 3 install disk so
they can build directly against it in the future.
Built and symlinked as realplayer-10.0.5-0.rhel3.1
